Juventus vs Milan: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Run away league leaders Juventus welcome a Milan side who sit in fourth place in the Serie A table to the Allianz Stadium.
Juventus scraped through a 1-0 win away to Empoli on the weekend – when young striker Moise Kean came off the bench to score his third league goal of the season and add to the two internationals goals he netted last week against Finland and Liechtenstein.
Milan have lost their last two Serie A games in a row – a 3-2 loss to Inter in the Derby della Madonnina and a 1-0 defeat away to Sampdoria on the weekend where goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma’s mistake gifted the win to the Blucerchiati. But prior to those two losses had won five in a row and were on a 10-game unbeaten run.
Juventus have a massive Champions League Quarter Final tie with Ajax coming up next week and could rotate in some squad players for this game – Cristiano Ronaldo could possibly miss out due to the muscle injury he picked up while on international duty.
Milan have a Coppa Italia Semi-Final second leg with Lazio coming up at the end of the month – but will first have a warm up game in Serie A with the Biancocelesti just after this tie with the Old Lady. The first leg of that Coppa Italia tie was a drab and dour 0-0 draw. A 1-0 win for Juventus is a likely outcome in this one.
Juventus to win
Juventus are on the home straight and heading for their eighth Serie A title in a row and a win here will keep them out in front of Second placed Napoli.
Total goals under 1.5 at 43/20
Juventus have scored just once in their last two games going into their midweek game with Cagliari and without top goal scorer Cristiano Ronaldo are a bit goal shy and that could be why the bookies are offering odds for the under 1.5 goals scored market.
